I was going to make one very large post featuring all of these stories, but decided it would be easier for you and me if I just do more shorter posts.
These are just a few of the personal stories that were shared with me, Thanks all of you!
Cabin says: I had an awesome toy called Fashion Plates.It came with these plastic plates with different tops, bottoms, model's heads, and shoes.The images on the plates were raised, so you could take an imprint/rubbing with them with paper and a crayon.You would mix and match them to create an outfit.

Oooh, here's a pic of me actually playing with one of my toys as a child...look at how cool I am in that jacket. hahaha I always felt like such a 'big girl' playing with those mini video game toys!
I saw a metal doll house at a friend's house the other day, and it reminded me of the terrific doll house I played with for hours as a girl. It had a battery operated ceiling light in the living room, real stairs, and a swimming pool in which I would put a few guppies from our aquarium. They would eventually jump out to meet their demise on the table.The sad part of that house, though, is that I never had dolls the correct size to use- especially articulated ones that would sit in the chairs!
I looooved my Mandy doll. We got her on a road trip and my mom made unique clothes for her.I looooved her! BTW I am somewhat traumatized that my childhood toys are now VINTAGE! Yikes! BLOG
I remember my aunts friend gave me a house for my barbies. Not a Barbie dream house...this was before those! It was huge...and made of cardboard, thick cardboard and completely furnished. I took old photos and pics from magazines and decorated the house to my own taste! Barbie spent days waiting for GI Joe to come home from Vietnam! Finally he came home and there was Barbie in her nice new home. BLOG
These are the "Fairy Tail Friends". I used to have one of these, I don't remember which one. I never really knew anything about these. Were they a TV show or just a toy? But I thought it was cute, nonetheless. I feel a little guilty, I had forgotten all about them. I just happened to see a photo while doing my 'vintage research'. I'm glad to have remembered these little sweeties! Did you have one of these as well?
